Baptism

“Baptism is our birth as Christians.  If we give holy Baptism the thought and attention it deserves, its power will vitalize and transform our weak devotions into a spirituality strong with the strength of Christ our Head, and holy with the holiness of the indwelling Trinity.”

(From the Rite of Baptism, Liturgical Press, 2003, Introduction.)

(Per Canon Law, pastor of home parish has authority to baptize.  Parishioners have a right to receive sacraments within own domicile).
